I found the basic recipe in recipegoldmine, then adapted it to make beautiful cookies for Chinese New Year. The combination of pineapple, coconut and a hint of almond is very yummy! Prep time is an estimation and cook time is 8 minutes per batch. Please note that these cookies are not very sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth, do not hesitate to use 1/2 cup of caster/brown sugar.

These cookies are very pretty, I used the egg yolk glaze and pineapple filling, but the cookie itself seemed to be kind of bland, next time I'll add a bit more sugar, and maybe some vanilla or more of the other extracts.
